dd606: I concur. Yes, finally some sanity from the Pakistani gvmt. Also, this will put them on record as waging war with their opponents and will deny them their oft chanted cries against the US.

Actually, it’s just another example of how third-world countries try and control their people thru fear, intimidation, torture and death.
Pakistan will gladly sacrifice a few of its own to win world acclaim.
Nothing they do surprises me any more, and neither does our reaction.
They have “the bomb”, and must be treated with ‘kid gloves’ – NUTS.
More terrorists come out of Pakistan than all the rest of the world.
Why we put up with all their dirty, underhanded antics is beyond me.

Pakistan bought several squadrons of fighter-bombers from China in 2010 and used them to bomb Taliban forces in the tribal areas, and they are using them again. China also built some more advanced fighters, sold them, and transferred the technology to allow Pakistan to make its own combat aircraft. China, Russia, and 4 central Asian countries in the SCO will watch Afghanistan after the US and NATO leave in December, so cooperation with Pakistan will enhance the SCO’s efforts.

China built 3 warships and transferred the technology to Pakistan. These vessels have helped combat Somali piracy in the Indian Ocean, and China has sent 16 flotillas of warships over the past 8 years to aid the International Naval Force in the same effort. Thus, Pakistan cooperates with China at sea and in the air against islamic pirates and insurgents to make their relationship closer. It also allows the US and NATO to leave Afghanistan and focus western efforts on north Africa and the Middle East. The logistics for central Asia have been too costly for the West, but Pakistan and the SCO members live in the region.
